Weekly cover contest #158 - Crosses9997

Moderator Jesse_O private msg quote post Address this user
New check mark votes for WEEKLY COVER CONTEST:
You vote three check marks for your FIRST favorite
Two check marks for the SECOND favorite
One check mark for the THIRD favorite.
You do not need to vote for three covers, but it is strongly encouraged!!! Let's have fun with this!!!


A new theme will be chosen each week, so participants must find a comic book that fits the theme

- One entry (one book) per person.
- Must be a real comic book in circulation.
- Magazine size books are also okay.
- The book does not have to be in your collection.
- Variants are acceptable.
- The previous winner is allowed to win in this contest.

Each week we will vote on who had the best cover.

- Friday begins the new contest.
- Wednesday at 12 noon EST is the cutoff which starts voting that will go through Thursday at 11:59 PM EST.
- Please vote through the built-in "three check marks" system.
- Don't vote early.
- The winner will be the cover with the most check marks.
- Vote three check marks for a favorite, two for the second favorite and one for the third favorite.

The winner will choose the next theme and begin a new thread.

In the event of a tie, the deciding factor will be if the entry was of a book in a CBCS slab. If both books are in a CBCS slab (or neither are) then the cover with the most three star votes wins. If they are still tied, then the one with the most 2 star votes wins. If the tie remains, then a sudden death contest will decide the winner. All tied contestants are to enter a new cover based upon the theme of that contest. At 9 pm EST, Friday, the cover with the most votes wins.

Re-post these rules in your new thread to keep them easy to find and for new folks who want to play.

Are Cross-hairs to far out of the box?

Crosshairs, right crosses ... whatever. I'm flexible on the definition as far as the contest goes. I figure people will decide how appropriate the more imaginative covers are with their votes. I just enjoy seeing what everybody posts when given the same criteria. Some people think literally, some more figuratively. It's all good IMO.

I haven’t had this one graded yet, but I have always liked the cover. But instead of seeing Doctor Strange, I see Deadman.

One of my favorite covers. Unfortunately the cover was so much better than the story
